Track Name: So Duh Pop Song
This is the time. It’s around the corner from everywhere. It’s what you want. Rock a roll a – So Duh Pop. It’s sugar, flavor, fizz, and water. We feed it to our sons and daughters. They say it’s good for you but you know it’s naughty. Yeah, yeah. Rock a roll a – So Duh Pop! It’s the taste of freedom. It’s that refreshing. It wants to buy the world. Yeah it’s the real thing. Rock a roll a – So Duh Pop. No deadlier for you than cocaine. No better for your cancer than smoking. Everybody thinks that it’s okay. Yeah, yeah. Rock a roll a – So Duh Pop! It feels like forever. Can’t beat the feeling. It’s maximum maximum. It’s the best friend you ever had. Rock a roll a – So Duh Pop. It’s giving us diabetes. Making everybody obese yeah. Dissolving bones and rotting our teeth yeah. Yeah yeah! Rock a roll a – So Duh Pop POP POP!
Track Name: Annie Mannequin
Annie Mannequin. Of coppery skin and proper proportions. Of chisel-y chin and stillest emotions. Of ghostliest limbs most careless caresses. Will it still thrill to fall through your dresses? Annie Mannequin. Of freshest taste and most sensuous scent. Of firmest waist waving perfectly turbulent. Of tomb-like womb in the seasonal fashion. Is it worth my while to sort through your trashcan? We’ll heat you up slowly till you are room temperature. When lonely guys come passing by we’ll make them all feel better. Annie Mannequin. Of superfluous head in the space where your face is. Of breathless neck to place your necklaces. Of amber and bone more lively than stone. We’ll not last as long, not near as alone.
Track Name: Bachelor
Didn’t I always try my best? Didn’t I always answer yes? Wasn’t it just too unreal to see me trying to be myself on TV? Ooh– if you had the time for me, would you wait in line for me? You’ll always be a bachelor. I just want to like myself. I don’t need the whole world to agree. I just want to know myself. I don’t need no roses, or paparazzi. I just want to love myself. I don’t need the whole world to see. Didn’t I want you first? Didn’t it just bring out the worst? Couldn’t your brothers, your mother, and all of the others see? It just wasn’t meant to be? Ooh– if you had the time for me, would you waste in line for me? You’ll always be a bachelor.
Track Name: The Rest You Know
I can’t explain. Sorry, boys just don’t get it. Come on take me. It’s easy’s all im sayin’. Oh… Falling inside. Falling in time. The first time I saw your eyes without your glasses I was vulnerable. The second time I just scared you with my hairdo, which was terrible (typical). The third time I knew I’d like to be your wife too. Well, the rest you know. All I’m sayin’ is this thing is on again. Gone all day. Is the singer so insane? Oh… Falling inside. Falling in time. The first time I’d an idea you like liked me I was so fired up. The second time you’d the mind to buy me coffee. Now we’re so wired up. The third time, “Have one,” you said, “clove cigarettes,” and we smoked the rest you know.
Track Name: The Other Side
Give me sexual tension over stretching my pension any day. Let my superstition overgrow to fruition my own way. I know fools inside and out. People used to tell me not to pout. Now I’m going out the other side of the world. Give me extra dimensions over sudden dementia. Take me away. Give me under suspicion overthrowing tradition my own way. Rules are rules but you can stretch them out. Those people used to tell you not to shout. Now you’re going out the other side of the world. Give me mental confusion over normal delusion any day. Give me death by pollution over solvent solutions I’m sorry to say. Take these jewels they hurt my eyes. I can see I’d be happy to be blind. It’s not easy with well traveled mind. Troubled by the life you’ve left behind without a doubt. Let’s check out the other side of the world.
Track Name: LOL Oh Well
I came to your door. I never knocked. I kept my hands to myself. I never rang your bell. Oh well. Oh LOL. I took a breath. I held it inside. I took another breath. I held it inside. I never told you. I typed in your name. I found your home page. Stared into your face book. I closed the window. Oh well. Oh LOL. I took a step. I turned to the side. I took another step. I tried to decide. I never told you. I took a breath. I dialed you in. I took another breath. I let it ring. I never told you. Oh well. Oh LOL. I have a hole too.
Track Name: SAD Light Satellite
Daylight Savings Time; and other measures of wartime; all the LEDs, all the world's Christmas trees; all the screens that you're seeing and being seen in: it's all madness. It drives me wild. All that matters is the mother and child. It's not enough. Incandescent radiation like turn signals on a gravy train. It's just another chain reaction when all that matters is the daughter and son. It's not enough. I'm feeling what you're feeling. We're living under the season. It's affecting our work. We are becoming disorderly. We need a SAD light. It'll make us feel healthier. We need a satellite. It'll give us more energy. Call me in 28 days. That's the next time that I get paid. We can meet at the shopping mall by the tropical waterfall. We can drink that fresh made lemonade on the moon-bleached beach. It's a man-made. And if the snow doesn't blow on the windows you can show me where the satellite should go. Before the madness is all over the world. All that matters is the boy and the girl. It's not enough. We can't afford to leave. We remember the reason. We came here to work (it's affecting our work). We are becoming disorderly. We need a SAD light. It'll make us feel happier. We need a satellite. It'll give us more energy.
Track Name: Wow Wow Wow
Just a yeah, yeah, yeah. That’s all it takes. And a wow, wow, wow. No it ain’t too great. Hey, don’t you know it’s alright for a rock a roll a so duh pop song?
Track Name: Baby's Babies
Baby’s babies’ baby is on the way. She’s going to replace us someday. Yay! Baby’s babies’ boom is gonna come. She’s gonna boom all you boomers to the sun. Yay! Baby’s babies! Baby’s baby is expecting one of mine. She could be due at any time. Yeah! Uh huh! Baby’s babies’ hearts already beat. We are already losing sleep. Yeah. Oh yeah! Baby’s babies!
Track Name: Slippery Slope
It’s a slippery slope and there’s not enough rope to lift if you drop from the bottom to the top. But if the price is too dear, the less you have the less you fear. We can give it all away. There’ll be nothing left to pay for. But if we can’t get up then we must come down. If we can’t get down then we must rise up. We can still succeed if we can land on our knees. But there’s no turning back when you’re falling in between the cracks. If we can reach the peak a humble monkey may look up and speak something mumbo jumbo greek geek double speak for the weak. But if we can’t get up then we must come down. And if we can’t get down then we must rise up. There’s a big black hole in the middle of the road. And the rich middle poor; we’re all headed for the same ditch. And the world is so full of it. And we’re all so full of it. And the earth is so stuffed full of it it’s going to pop like a top ten hit.
Track Name: They All Lived
We lay on our backs on the mowed down short brown grass. We played with the passing clouds of brass trumpets and rainbow trouts. The silver plane soared without a sound down on the sleepy town and into the stony mountain. They all lived happily ever after. We rolled on our sides to slide down the humble hill. We waved at the tin toy train rolling low on the real steel rail. The miles and miles curved like smiles to eternity. We read the graffiti splashing into the sea. They all lived happily ever after. They fell before our eyes and we fell before their eyes. We lay on our backs. The twinkling stars sprinkled out. The numerous luminous satellites zoomed through the voluminous night. The mini mineralized meteorites made missiles across the sky and fizzled before our eyes. They all lived happily ever after. They fell before our eyes and we fell before their eyes.
